Quintin Washington Tangles with Marriott

Staff Pick

It was a warm, sunny day in December when local journalist Quintin Washington snapped a quick pic of the Mother Emanuel Way Historic District — innocent enough. But little did the host of YouTube series Quintin’s Close-Ups know he was about to make national headlines. Included in Washington’s photo was the Courtyard Charleston Historic District-Marriott hotel, whose Twitter account asked him not to include the hotel in photos of Emanuel AME Church. What followed was a social media firestorm. Hotel reps quickly apologized for the misunderstanding, and Washington soon returned to reporting the news rather than making it. —Dustin Waters
